EF 50 f/1.4 II USM [CR2]

A much needed upgrade is coming
A good source piped up today and said a new EF 50mm f/1.4 USM exists and is being tested. Release date is unknown.

Upgrades:

  • Optical upgrade, but it’s not “L”
  • Build upgrade. The current 50 f/1.4 from Canon is one of the most unreliable in the lineup.
  • New USM

Along with the above, expect a nice price increase as well. Most likely above its Sigma counterpart.

  1. Seems like it’s not on backorder anymore :P. Maybe I will win the lottery then have no regrets with my current 50 1.4

  2. I really hope this is on its way more than any of the other lenses on the poll above.. Everyone should own a 50mm,But a decent one at least.. This upgrade is badly needed..I tried 4 copies of this lens in a camera shop and it put me off the way it was really soft wide open on all of them..I have had 3 50mm 1.8 mk II’s and they all have had fantastic detail wide open…
    Hurry the hell up Canon and listen to what people want and just do it..
    The 14-24mm L would be lovely in 2.8.
    :)
